Noah Everett shed his rent boy existence for a bar and helping young men get a second chance at life. Haunted by those he couldn’t save, he keeps others at bay until his self-imposed loneliness is shattered by ambitious but homeless Jeremy Kincaid.
Aged out of the foster system, Jeremy’s the perfect target for a ruthless pimp like Willie Carnell. He wants no part of any future that includes working for Willie, but without a strong ally, he may not have a choice.
Noah knows exactly what Willie’s capable of, and if he’ll fight for strangers, he’ll fight harder for Jeremy.
Jeremy is cold and hurt, but determined to finish school and get the scholarship he is working for. What he will not do is sell himself for anything. But that might not be so easy when the local pimp is determined to have him in his stable.
Noah is nicknamed the Angel, he knows how bad it can be on the streets and does his best to get as many boys off the streets and back home or a fresh start as possible. He has seen Jeremy at the laundry mat, that he owns a couple of times and is worried about him. When he offers Jeremy a place to live plus meals and a job, the only thing he wants in return is for Jeremy to go to school and keep his grades up.
When danger comes at them they must work together to make it out alive. Can Noah work through his issues to follow his feelings for a younger man? Jeremy falls in love with Noah but can he convinces him that he knows what he wants and it’s not just a phase?
A good read that deals with a hard subject, Noah is the kind of people who aren’t afraid to get involved to save young people who get in o very their head and just want to go home. Jeremy is one of the few who are kicked out at 18 with no one, and nowhere to go but fight to finish high school and go to college. The struggle and the ability to overcome obstacles made this a wonderful story.
